Charity events are part of life at Highfield. We are proud of the contribution that pupils and their families make to a wide range of events that are organised at class, year group and the whole school level. Each year an amazing amount of money is distributed to a range of causes. It is arguably of equal importance that our pupils have learnt first-hand about the objectives of a range of causes. This exposure for some will act as a catalyst for lifelong support of a particular cause. We welcome representatives from a range of charities each year to contribute to the PSHE programme and to attend different events that are organised. Our charity work helps our pupils to
• develop an awareness of the need in the local, national and international settings
• respond to identified needs both as individuals and as groups
• support and organise a range of events that generate funds for a designated cause
• develop a sense of community
